II.GROUP DISCUSSION:
As we know this is the main ELIMINATION round
The whole lot of 800 were made into no. of batches of 10 ppl in each
The main qualities they were looking in were ur
Always try tu make ur GD constructive!Most of the times the group getz benifitted when a conclusion is reached
TRY tu initiate the topic or end the topic.BUT!,it is also the most risky effort if u don't do it properly
any way u will find important tips fur GD on internet.

our GD:
After we all entered the room he made a note of all our numbers and made us sit in a sequence
He then asked us to choose a topic of our choice
The topic we chose was WESTERN CULTURE Vs EASTERN CULTURE
only 2 of us were selected from our group!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
-ve points------->
1.The topic was decided by a 3ppl in the group without taking other's opinions
2.The initiation of topic was also chaotic.3 ppl wanted those extra points of starting Gd .They did not stop.
3.The discussion was worthless.Everyone wanted tu dominate,but,had no extra pointsand repeated same points
Fed up with all these the observer asked us tu conclude in the 4th minute itself(scheduled time is 10min)
4.The observer wanted 1 person of his choice to conclude.But,still poeple tried themselves to conclude
+ve points------->
1.when ppl were lingering around the same point,i interfeared in between and countered their points for
a minute and welcomed their responses.But,they again continued on their own old point
2.When the group was in chaotic discussion i did not go and mix up but kept cool(But, later i gave my points)
**3.I was gettin familiar with my group members before the GD started and was cool while others were appearing
tensed.He noticed all these things
He shortlisted 220 members here
________________________________________________________________________

That's it and he asked me tu wait for the result
We can say i was lucky enough to be interviewed first.As the interview was going on it became more tougher!!!!

Finally he shortlisted 148 ppl.
______________________________________________________________________
The ppl who were interviewed after 4hours faced severe stress interview out of which only a handfull were
selected.So, it alwayz beneficial tu get interviewed at the initial stages itself
My frnz pls be prepared for the worst case always.Dont take any chance.I know ppl who lost many interviews due
to silly reasons,and getting into a company is not a joke

*****
YOU SHUD BE ABLE TO FACE ANY CHANGING SITUATION ACCORDINGLY.SO,PREPARE WELL.
MY ABOVE EXPERIENCE IZ ONLY A CASE.EVRY TIME U MAY NOT FACE THE SAME SITUATION.
ALWAYZ THE BEST WAY TO PREPARE IS BY KNOWING WHAT THE COMPANY DEMANDZ FOR.
AFTERALL THE CUSTOMER LOOKS FOR ONLY WHAT HE WANTS.ANALOGOUS IS THE CASE WITH RECRUITER.
NEVER LOSE HOPE!!  ALL THE BEST!
